Dozens of Swedish caregivers were recently recognized by Seattle Metropolitan magazine’s annual Top Doctors and Nurse Practitioners feature.

Nearly 13,000 nominations were narrowed down by an anonymous advisory panel. The panel’s criteria included such items as years of experience, competency, patient rapport and satisfaction and compliance with care recommendations.

Below you will find a list of Swedish providers recognized with this year’s top honor. A complete list of providers can also be found online.

Linda Rogers Volunteers at the Food Bank Wearing Z-CoiL shoes.




Linda Rogers has been wearing Z-CoiL shoes for the past 15 years. She now has 4 pairs of shoes including her purchase today of her white Legend shoes from our store at “Your 2 Feet”. She states, "My white Z-Walkers need to replaced after lasting three years."

She learned about how Z-CoiL shoes work from her sister and brother-in-law, Tim and Laura. They wore the Z-CoiL shoes for quite a few years.

Steve and Linda met from a singles ad in Little Nickle and have been married for 23 ½ years.
Steve said, “The moment I saw her I realized I had been dreaming about her before we met.”

Linda allots funds for her purchase of Z-CoiL shoes. Roger reminds her, “I purchase three pairs of New Balance shoes, at $125.00 each pair, which last as long as one pair of Z-CoiL shoes.” This makes Z-CoiL shoes a bargain price, especially when they are the only shoes that give her relief.

Linda tells others who ask about her shoes, “Z-CoiL shoes do wonders for pain in my low back and knees. I will need a hip replacement for arthritis. I don’t wear any other shoes if I don’t have to.”

She retired in November 2007 from her position as an internal auditor for 5 branches of a credit union. For 14 years she assured compliance with credit union rules and procedures.
Thirteen years prior to this job, she worked in compensation and benefits in HR at a multi-care medical center.

For five years, she’s been volunteering at her neighborhood food bank.
After joining the food bank board 2 years ago, she now acts as a volunteer director for the North Mason Food Bank in Belfair, WA. This non-profit food bank has been in operation since 1982 relying on donations, volunteers and a rent discount from the landlord to stay open. She oversees other volunteers and deals with suppliers. Standing and walking on uneven surfaces in a warehouse with non regulation stairs can make walking hazardous.

Linda says, “I can tell the huge difference the four times a year I wear other shoes than Z-CoiL. Other shoes are not as comfortable, I have less stamina, and my low back and knee pain returns. I can’t wait to take those shoes off as soon as possible.”

“Your 2 Feet” and the clinic of Dr. Lotchie Kerch are relocating to Magnolia late spring 2015. 
Please call 206-786-0064 for transition and relocation news.

Gisela Jenkins Buys Toffler Z-CoiL Shoes to Replace Taos Clog

Gisela J. has been wearing Z-CoiL shoes for the past 6 1/2 years. She owns two pairs of clogs, both with covered coils.  Any Z-CoiL shoes can have the springs covered (hidden).
Today she purchased a pair of "Toffler" Z-CoiL shoes for her knee and back pain.

She learned about the Z-CoiL shoes when two co-workers told her Z-CoiL shoes are roomy, comfortable and wearing them aided in relieving their back discomfort.

Gisela J. stated prior to wearing Z-CoiL shoes, she previously had leg numbness related to her back discomfort. She's had cortisone injections into her spine for relief.
Her job as a shipping and receiving clerk at Emerald Casino requires she stand at least 7 hours per day carrying products.
Her feet do not hurt like they did prior to wearing Z-CoiL shoes.

When others ask her what kind of shoes she's wearing and why, she says, "My feet, knees and back do not hurt like they did prior to wearing Z-CoiL shoes. My Z-CoiL shoes are super comfortable and well worth the price. My Z-CoiL shoes (see photo) have lasted for over 6 years."

She's opted to have her Z-CoiL coils covered with an enclosed coil so they are not so readily seen as Z-CoiL shoes.

Currently "Your 2 Feet" is located at 1201 Pine St., 206-786-0064. We lost our lease and we're moving in late spring 2015 to Magnolia.

Mission: To Change the World



Each Day, Week and Month we deliver on our mission of changing the world. Here is Pamela L.'s story:
"I am a nurse and am on my feet for many hours of the day. I had been having extreme pain in my right heel. An x ray showed that I had chipped my heel and did have some spurring. I did not know what I was going to do. I spent many hours buying and searching for shoes that would help with my pain. Nothing seemed to help. One day I went into a shoe store that sold z coils, looking for an insert that would help. I ended up buying a pair of white leather coils. From the moment that I put them on I could tell a BIG difference in my pain. My lower back pain improved also. I carry copies of the z coil brochures with me, and when we get patients that complain of back or knee pain I always have my shoes on and a pamphlet to hand out.  This is me with my dog "Tinkie" I found her abandoned underneath a bridge. She loves going on walks and I love my Z Coils and that I am able now to walk pain free. If you notice they are the hikers"
